You know him from television roles in Friday Night Lights and The Wire. On the big screen he starred in Fantastic Four and the Rocky sequel film Creed. Now actor Michael B. Jordan has entered the universe of video games.

In an extended trailer released Wednesday morning by 2k Games, Jordan is depicted as a member of the Phoenix Suns in the popular MyCareer mode for NBA 2k17.

Jordan portrays Justice Young, and the four minute trailer shows highlights ranging from Young meeting the media and front office staff, to toasting a Suns playoff berth.

It’s an obvious watch for Phoenix Suns fans who are also gamers, but even if you’re not, check it out. The trailer features cameos from Dragan Bender, Devin Booker, T.J. Warren, Brandon Knight and Jared Dudley, and you can see what Talking Stick Resort Arena looks like in video game form.

NBA 2k17 will be released on September 16th.
